I wonder if there is a special school people go to to write up patents? I was reading a patent, number EP 2610148 A1 Open Google link in a new window, which has as description:

A motorcycle (1) includes a rider seat (52), a passenger seat (54), a grab bar (70) having left (74) and right side portions extending rearward from left and right sides of the passenger seat (54), and a coupling portion (90) coupling the left side portion (74) and the right side portion to each other at the rear of the passenger seat (54), and a hip guard (110) disposed between the passenger seat (54) and the coupling portion (90) with respect to a vehicle fore-and-aft direction and coupling the left side portion (74) and the right side portion to each other wherein an upper end (114) of the hip guard (110) is disposed at a position higher than the passenger seat (54) and the coupling portion (90) and an opening is formed between the hip guard (110) and the coupling portion (90) as viewed in plan.


That sounds like the "Who's on first? Open Who's on first? link in a new window" joke. Anyway, I struggled through the patent description, only falling asleep twice, when I noticed the patent is for the pillion grab bars.

Patent Pilion Grab bar

Somehow, this applicant wants to put a grab bar in the rear of the pillion in order to increase the comfort of the pillion. So what is the big deal. Motorcycle manufacturers have been making this for a very long while.

Am I missing something? Try to read the patent and tell me what is so special about this one. Do read it before going to bed since you will sleep better.

The only funny thing about this patent application is, that the applicant is Mr. Suzuki for Mr. Yamaha. So what happened to Mr. Honda and Mr. Kawasaki?
